The owners describe themselves as passionate hoteliers. That is no idle boast, but their passion is apparent in every aspect of this hotel. It has a welcoming, comfortable feel from the moment you enter the front door. Even its strikingly elegant appearance from the street is a hint of the ambience inside.
It was 25 years since we lived in northern Germany and a couple more since we visited Bavaria. I chose the hotel mainly because of its Trip Advisor rating and partly because, in my previous life, the office paid for 5-star hotels and sustenance. The Laimer Hof is impressive because it is in a quiet suburb a hop and a skip away from the magnificent Nymphenburg Palace and its gardens, and also near a good variety of restaurants. Just walking around and having a coffee in Romanplatz was educational, yet Munich main station was only a 15-minute tram ride from there and one pass covered my wife and me for three days.
Nothing is too much trouble for Sebastian and Alexandra and their staff. Their advice was always helpful and, as others have said, you tend to feel more like extended family than anonymous guests in a hotel chain. Our original attempt at booking was rejected because of Oktoberfest so we reversed our travel around Bavaria to stay in Munich for four nights from September 10th. Sebastian most days paraded his fine range of lederhosen and accompanying shirts in the spirit of the coming festivities, but I managed to resist all his blandishments to join the clan!
We had a tower room and it was spacious. The bathroom was spotless. Australians and North Americans will concede we have bigger bathrooms, but this was perfectly adequate and the shower was effective.
Breakfast was hearty fare and fuelled you up ready for another day’s sightseeing – or shopping.
I’m a fairly tough marker and I was going to deduct a point because the hotel has no lift. However, Sebastian will gladly take your cases up two floors, with no apparent effort. I have travelled a lot in Germany and in my view this is the best-value accommodation in which I have stayed and undoubtedly the friendliest. A deserved tick of excellence.

The Hotel is very popular for weddings and offers two romantic tower rooms for overnight stays.
